Brave Ultimate Collector’s Edition 5 DVD Combo Pack Review

BraveTitle: Brave (Five-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD + Digital Copy)

I’ve been promising Matthew that we would get “Brave” on DVD when it became available. He fell in love with the trailers we saw on TV, but we never made it to the theatre to see it. But we have been enjoying Brave-themed reading books, coloring books and iPad game apps. I’ve been intrigued by the story as well, so you can imagine our excitement when we received the Ultimate Collector’s Edition 5 DVD Combo Pack of “Brave” for review.

From the geniuses at Disney and Pixar, “Brave” tells the story of a heroic journey of the headstrong, young adventurer Merida. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies tradition and an age-old custom that inadvertently unleashes chaos within her family and the kingdom, and forces her to discover the true meaning of bravery.

From the very start of the movie I knew that we were in for a treat. The graphics, the music and the animation were all fantastic. There were funny scenes that had all of us laughing and thrilling scenes that has us gasping and rooting for Merida. This movie was great for my oldest, who at four is very into action and adventure movies. It was also a fantastic movie for me – I truly enjoyed every minute. I think it’s a great family film. The wonderful benefits of the Collector’s Combo Pack is that not only do you get the benefit of enjoying the movie in Blu-Ray quality, you also get Blu-Ray 3D version of the film, a Blu-Ray disc of bonus features, a standard DVD (which is great for travel, taking to grandma’s house, etc.), as well as a digital copy. The film runs 95 minutes and is rated PG (there are a few intense scenes that involve bear fighting, but nothing that my four-year-old couldn’t handle). The Ultimate Collector’s Edition 5 DVD Combo Pack is available starting November 13th and has an MSRP of $49.99. If you have a “Brave” fan in your family, this pack is a great idea for a holiday gift!

“Brave” is also available in a 1-Disc DVD pack with an MSRP of $29.99 and a 3-Disc Blue-Ray Combo pack with an MSRP of $39.99. For more “Brave” fun, check out the website where you’ll find information on the DVDs, games, activities and more. You can also find out more about “Brave” on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
